Yin

Injury prevention, joint health, and restorative energy.

The essence of Yin Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, blood-pumping, strengthening "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga practice, Yin focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Pure bliss!

Make yourself a cup of tea and get your candlelight going to set the mood for a good night's rest. This yin practice will be an invitation for an easeful slumber. Be sure you have a little wall space - if you don’t, all postures can be done either seated or laying down. Conclude with a guided meditation, and your final savasana will be in your own bed. Props Needed: A blanket. Props Suggested: Two blankets.
Relieve your body from the pent-up strain of sitting in front of a computer, texting, or being otherwise "locked" to your devices.

Relax into simple neck stretches and hero pose with eagle arms, then end seated or in savasana if you have time. Props Suggested: A bolster, two blocks, and a blanket.
Life can be full of challenges. When you hit your max, give yourself a deserving pause and witness the dance.

In Chinese medicine the water element nourishes all the other organs, providing an anchor that soothes the body and allows it to relax into a deep, rejuvenating sleep. This practice works on the water element and the meridians associated with it to help prepare the body and mind for a restful sleep. While helpful anytime, this class is perfect to do right before bed.
Recharge from the strain of being pulled in so many directions in everyday life. This practice provides a necessary return to wholeness, a state of inner calm and well-being.

Props Needed: Two blankets. Props Suggested: A bolster or an additional blanket.
A specifically designed sequence of yin backbends and heart openers to facilitate the ability to connect to your inner intentions and the deepest desires of your heart.

Focus on releasing the important deeper muscles of your shoulders, so they can function more efficiently. Access this area with long held poses like supine gomukhasana, prone poses and spinal twists.

Props Needed: Two blankets and a block.
Explore a different way of opening your hips with a variety of prone, supine and seated poses that place gentle traction on your hips.
